Beta was correct

December 27, 2015

Now that Market Street is almost completed, it is easy to verify that Beta Engineering is correct and VHB was wrong on the how the intersections near MarketStreet will behave.   The attached images were taken on Dec 23rd around 1:00 PM.  For anyone who drove through the Walnut Salem Street area during the past week, you were most likely in similar situations.    The town should learn from this experience, especially if more commercial development is proposed.
